Hubblecast 53: Hidden Treasures in Hubble's Archive
The ESA astronomy podcast bringing you the latest from the Hubble Space Telescope
27 March 2012
Over two decades in orbit, the Hubble Space Telescope has made a huge number of observations. Every week, we publish new ones on the Hubble website. But hidden in Hubble’s huge data archives are some truly breathtaking images that have hardly ever been seen by anyone.
In this episode, Dr J, aka Dr Joe Liske, explains what all this data is, what it’s for, and how you can take a look at it yourself.
If you’re want to try your hand at looking through the archive for hidden treasures, why not enter our Hidden Treasures competition (competition closes 31 May 2012). Find a great dataset and you could win an iPod Touch, try your hand at processing the image and you could win an iPad.
This Hubblecast is the first with specially composed music by Toomas Erm, head of the control engineering department at the European Southern Observatory.
